ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli's Vita mission in numbers.
Vita stands for Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability and was chosen by Italy’s ASI space agency, which is providing the mission through a barter agreement with NASA.
In Italian, “vita” means “life”, reflecting the experiments that Paolo ran and the philosophical notion of living in outer space – one of the most inhospitable places for humans.
